Because he is a good fellow, a gentleman, and pos-
sesses the rare ability to be a good teacher, we, the
editorial staff of the thirty-third Sou'Wester, dedicate
this volume to THOMAS HODGIN MARSH, Head of
the Department of Speech and Dramatic Literature.
" r "W1
For the third and last time
we sit at our desk wondering
what to say to you as we pre-
pare to release the year's Sou'-
Wester. We don't suppose this
year book to be more free from
error than the Sou'Wester of
other years, but we have done
what we have always tried to
do, given you our best.
If we were to say there was
a tightness in our throat, you
probably wouldn't believe it,
but we do thank you for this
final opportunity to give you a
book to be proud of. We hope
we have done that.
It is yours, you know, and we
sincerely hope you like it. You
may turn on for the 1938 Sou'-

REVIEW OF THE FOOTBALL SEASON
What we needed this football season was more and stronger adhesive tape.
The Pirates sailed their sturdy victory ship through half a season of blessed wins, only
to see it disintegrate on the grassy plain of Waxahachie one cold November night.
More and better tape might have held it together.
Speak of courage and you have the Buccaneer team of 1937. After suffering
a crushing defeat at the hands of the Baylor Bears the Southwestern team had the
courage, the initiative, the fire to come back and take consecutive victories over five
powerful opponents: the Denton Teachers, St. Edward's Tigers, San Marcos Teachers,
Abilene Christian College and Arts and Industries.
They dropped their first game to Trinity University of Waxahachie and lost
stride. McMurry rallied to win at Georgetown, Daniel Baker eked out a one point
win at Brownwood, and Howard Payne came from behind to win the final at George-
The Pirates scored against every opponent. Their two points against the Baylor
Bears was better than A. & M. or Centenary could do.
It was a team slated to be fired by a crop of sturdy sophomores. Instead it
found inspiration in the gallant work of seven seniors, boys who were determined to
(Next Page Please)
finish their career of Canary and Black in victory and not in defeat. Couser, Cvr,
and Tyner in the backfield: how they fought and played together! Each suffered
injuries during the season. Each refused to quit. In the line it was Mann, Mays, Rader
and McCook who played their hearts out, who wept unashamed in their defeat on
There were no weak sisters in the Texas Conference this season. Howard Payne,
undoubtedly held some slight advantage over the other clubs, but the margin was
slight enough to keep all the other teams fighting for circuit victories. Abilene Chris-
tian, the team that failed to win a game and finished in the cellar, led the Howard
Payne aggregation through most of the last quarter before losing by six points.
The race throughout the conference was one glorious scrap, and the Pirates
of Southwestern and "Lefty" Edens was in the thick of it all.
Fourteen lettermen, all headed by little Ray Couser, reported for practice when
Coach Edens issued the call on September 6. These lettermen were: backs — Tyner,
Orr, Morgan, Fehr, Knight, Couser, and Blum; linemen — Doc Mann, Freeman Mays,
Gilbert Swanzey, Jack Allen, Joe McCook, George Rader and Louis Bremer.
New men who had the stuff were "Bulldog" Crowley, Jack McCann, Charlie
Ingram, Phil Magee, Claud McBay, Lewis Doan, Cy Rodgers, Milton Perry, and Walter
Riggs. Not all of these boys earned letters, but each played important parts in the
success of the season. Oldsters, the squadmen, who helped out included Art Beck-
with, "Mama" Heard and Elmer Nilson.
The season opened on Snyder Field with an easy, almost lackadaisical, win over
the Lon Morris College Bearcats. Vicious line-smashing by fullback Bob Knight and
short passes by Ray Couser were features of the contest; Knight won the game with
a plunge early in the game.
Next on the Pirate schedule were the Baylor Bears, one of the toughest clubs in
the Southwest Conference and probably one of the finest in Baylor history. The game
was just one long scoring jamboree for the Bears, but close observers saw flashes of
Pirate thunder on occasions during the contest. The Pirates made a bid early in the
first quarter, marched from receiving the kick-off down to the Baylor 18-yard line
before they were halted. That spurt scared the Pirates as well as the Bears.
On that same Saturday the North Texas State Teachers gave S. M. U. a battle
royal, led three periods before the Mustangs mustered scoring power to win the
game. They were given several touchdowns over the Pirates when the teams clashed
the following week, but little Ray Couser cocked his throwing arm, snapped it, and
Doc Mann snared the ball on the five yard line. From that position Knight went over
and the game belonged to the Buccaneers.
The Teacher contest established the Pirates as title contenders and sent sup-
porters all over the state into high spirits. A huge crowd of ex-students were at
home-coming the following week. St. Edwards' university furnished the grid opposition
and it was opening the Conference chase for both teams. From the Austin American,
written after the game by sports editor Wilbur Evans:
Georgetown, Oct. 9. — The fresh norther that swept across
Snyder field in Georgetown Saturday night did not cause the
St. Edwards' University Tigers near so much grief as the
breezy aerial attack which Ray Couser engineered to give the
Southwestern University Pirates a I 2 to 7 victory in the open-
ing Texas conference game for the two teams before a Home-
coming day crowd.
Still smarting from a I 3 to defeat of last year, the Pirates played host to the
Bobcats of the Southwest Texas State Teachers' College from San Marcos. The game
demonstrated superior Buccaneer football, and although Southwestern won only by
a single touchdown, the contest was quite one-sided. The Pirates smacked hard and
true. San Marcos only had the ball past the 50 yard stripe on one occasion. The
Pirates made a dozen threats and were on the 3 yard line when the game ended.
Abilene Christian College was next on the program. It was a conference game
and the Christians were set for victory, mentally and physically. The Pirates entered
the game just a bit cocky and were forthwith hammered about for three night-marish
quarters . The final period was a demonstration of pure grit and determination by the
Pirates. Ray Couser, weary and battered, rose up and drove the team down the field
for the winning points in the final minute. Neat, quick-stepping runs by Crowley and
a miracle catch by Hershel Orr were factors in the victory.
The final win of the season came the succeeding week, back on Snyder field.
Bud McCallum brought a powerful Arts and Industry Javelina team to Georgetown
and were all set to stop the Southwestern University winning streak. The Pirates,
however, easily matched the invaders and Bob Knight won the game in the second
half with a beautiful 35 yard "touchdown town" run. (Next Page Please)
•53 ^r r
Undefeated In circuit play, winners over North Texas, A. & I., and San Marcos
in non-conference games, the Pirates were expected to polish off Trinity without
too much trouble. Couser got away nicely for a touchdown early in the first quarter
but Trinity matched it with a long pass a minute later. In the second quarter Trinity
kicked a field goal to take a 3 point lead. Orr and Couser were forced out of the
game with injuries in the third quarter but Ted Fehr unleashed a vicious passing
attack that clicked for a score when Swanzey took one over the goal line. Trinity
would not be outdone, however, and came back to block a punt, drive up the field
10 yards and win the game. Score: Trinity 16, Southwestern 13.
And that was the story. Daniel Baker took a 7 to 6 win in Brownwood, McMurry
won a decisive, 19 to 7, game here in Georgetown and Howard Payne turned the
trick 20 to 7, on Thanksgiving. McMurry deserved to win, Daniel Baker and Howard
Payne did not. Morgan shook loose and ran 70 yards for a score against Daniel
Baker, only to have it called back because one of his mates was off-side, and Couser
had engineered a passing attack that clicked with sure fire down to the 12 yard line
as the game ended. Against Howard Payne the Pirates made 14 first downs against
6 but were unable to get the ball across the goal line. Little things like Referee
decisions played a telling part, but that was of little consolation.
The Pirates finished about half way up the conference ladder, a decided improve-
ment over last year. Jack Allen, guard, made first string all-conference team myrhical
honors; Hershel Orr, Ray Couser and Freeman Mays were given 'honorable mention".
Coach Edens lettered Couser, Orr, Tyner, Mays, Fehr, Knight, Morgan, Mann,
Swanzey, Ingram, McBay, Beckwith, Doan, Allen, Magee, McCook, Rader and
Bremer. Couser, Orr, Tyner, Mann, McCook and Rader are seniors. Swanzey, Ingram,
McBay, Fehr, Knight, Morgan, Doan, Allen and Bremer will carry the colors again
In spring practice three new boys showed exceptional ability and bid fair to
break into the starting lineup next year. These are: "Dutch" O'Neil, former Yoakum
all-state back; Robert Lee McMurry, former Yoakum high star guard, and Henry
Jones, a rough tackle who saw considerable service at Allen Academy.
Your correspondent, in line with most of the Texas Conference critics, is expect-
ing the Pirates to finish on top, or very nearly so, next year. With such srars as Allen,
Knight, Fehr, Ingram, McBay and others returning, there is no reason to expect the
Pirates to lose more than one or two games.

REVIEW OF THE
The basketball team, unlike in football, started
poorly but finished strong.
Coach Edens had only a few capable players and
considering the material had a successful season.
Lettermen who returned to play for Southwestern
were Roy Tyner, Freeman Mays and George Foster.
To their aid came Henry "Monk" Myers and Billy
Babbi" Rivers. These five men usually played the
The Pirates won three of their last four games,
defeating St. Edwards', the University of San An-
tonio and Howard Payne.
In every game Roy Tyner, senior forward from
Kerens, was outstanding. He averaged 12 points
per game and played exceptionally well on defense.
Many experts considered him the most capable
player in the Texas Conference.
Freeman Mays gained recognition for his con-
sistent play at guard position. Although he was
seldom brilliant, his all-round play made him valu-
able to the team.
George Foster and Henry Myers were handi-
capped by their small size, but there their handicap
ended. Both were brilliantly fast and very aggres-
sive. Each had his "money" shot and each scored
points in every game.
Freshman Billy Rivers was considered one of the
finest guards in the conference. Not fast or flashy,
he somehow kept his opponents from scoring points.
High scorers met their Waterloo when they op-
posed him. He will be something to watch next
From this guintet, Coach Edens will have Rivers,
Foster and Myers back next year. Add a few more
capable performers and Southwestern can easily
claim one of the best teams in the conference.
The entire sguad consisted of the following men:
Mays, Tyner, Foster, Myers, Rivers, Robinson, S riles,
Boys who earned their "S" are: Tyner, Mays, Fos-
ter, Myers, Robinson, Reeves, and Rivers.

BEHIND THE POLITICAL CURTAIN
The curtain was raised on the year '3 7-' 3 8 to reveal some of the live
liest and most bewildering political machinations Southwestern had seen
in many years.
Calm, li\e a blan\et of dust, had settled over campus political machine
ery following the carefully arranged Lwithdraw' put'' em-by -acclamation
episode of the '36'37 Spring elections. All factions were at peace. Barbs
and Gree\s mingled freely; Phis let K. A. have their pledge residue; K. A.
let Sigs have their residue.
Then someone thought of publications election. Some one asked,
"Why Phis?" (Probably the several K. A. and Barbs who wanted an
office.) There seemed to be no logical answer, but the older heads were
more cautious. They remembered the ease of the previous year's elections
and hoped to avoid trouble. They waited for Scarbo the Schemer to come
around; he never did.
The Barb organiation was sloppy; the girls had withdrawy^ into a Les
Amis organization — the boys were numerous but unwieldy. Barnett
wor\ed for Barb unity one day and for disorganization the next day. Per-
haps only Roberts and Dromgoole \now just how sha\y the formerly all'
powerful Barb group was.
The Sigs had little leadership, no unity, few members. Their main
asset was Stafford — a personal friend of a couple of Barbs.
The K. A. had fair leadership, numbers, and many candidates. They
had always generously given to the Tri Delts, so Doc clasped Estine's hand
and went loo\ing for Sigs and Barbs.
Thus it was that the great quarternary — Barbs, Sigs, K. A., and Tri
Delts, was formed.
At Senate meeting for nomination of publication officers the newly
formed machine began to clic\. (Continued on Page 128)
BEHIND THE POLITICAL CURTAIN
(Continued from Page 127)
We shall pass hastily by the memorable chapel presentation of the
Senate's nominees. Suffice to say that the Phis had a hard time getting
their nominees from the floor to stic\; Scarbo was chided — Mann and
Dromgoole carrying the attac\ for the machine. Stafford and Stanford
were put in easily. The Phis put up the worthy Bob Rentfro against
Myers and through unthoughtedness nominated Sneed and Holbert, un-
The afternoon following that chapel saw the never to be forgotten
Senate meeting, called for investigation of Sneed and Holbert. Mann, Dor-
wood, Tyner, Dromgoole, and Roberts rode the machines steam roller
over Scarbo, McCall, Brown and their loyal (1 ) Zetas, to the raucous
laughter of Dunn and Blum — declaring the questioned men ineligible.
Election day accentuated the machine triumph. Zetas and Alpha
Delts, instead of going Phi as was anticipated, gave half their votes to the
Alliance. A last minute rally found the Barb girls lined up behind Georgia
Lee Harris, astute machine protagonist.
After publications election Scarbo the Schemer brought out his aliena-
tion of affection issue, shrewdly aimed at disruption of the machine. This
classic printed protest almost boomeranged, giving much publicity to the
four way alliance.
During the next month animosity lessened somewhat, only to heighten
sharply for the Student s Association struggle. Phis were punch drun\ but
clung doggedly on; the Machine was coc\y.
In the chapel following Senate nominations Doc Mann climaxed his
political career with the installation of Chester Dunn in the Student
President position; Phis again ran doughty Rentfro; Tyner spent an uncom-
fortable five minutes while his candidates played charades; Harris, insurgent
Barb, forever sacrificed his own political nec\ by nominating Ferguson;
Dromgoole gnawed his beard. (Concluded on Page no)

(Concluded from Page 128)
On Election Day Tyner shed his indolence and fought manfully for
Manford. Vote counting found Machine leaders shamefully hiding their
heads as hordes of their ran\s bolted the tic\et — only great reserve power
allowed them victory.
As the curtain goes down we can truly say we enjoyed it. It was a
good fight with worthy opponents and staunch friends. We shall miss
Southwestern s political dramas.

Honey, I'm so glad that you wrote me first that you have decided to
come to Southwestern. I've always had a big-sisterly attitude toward you
and there are so many things that I want you to \now about the life here
before you hit the bedlam called "Rush ~Wee\".
The people here are fun. They divide themselves off into Barbs and
Gree\s. If you bring your car up for Rush V*/ee\ and act li\e you might
have some money or pull somewhere, you'll be a Gree\. If you don't cause
a sensation by throwing a \eg of beer off the train ahead of you or some-
thing when you get here, youll probably be a Barb.
I \now you re the quiet type, but I've \nown you a long time and will
pitch the curves for you if you just listen to me and no one else. Don't
let any of those other old girls ta\e you off the train though for you will
probably be thiy%\ing that I'm the school's howling worst as soon as they
find out you \now me.
You want to be a Gree\ because you get to wear a pretty pin with
pearls in it and if you do anything wrong before you learn the ropes, you
can tell everyone that one of the sisters made you do it.
One of the fraternities is \nown as Kappa Sigma. Two or three years
ago they got into a brawl with another frat over something or other and

came out on the little end. Everyone still goes around taking nasty crac\s
about them and half the people don't \now why.
They re funny boys. All of them have poor eyesight and their house
has to have soft red lights to brea\ the glare. The;y \eep their poor house
mother awa\e half the night playing "marbles " on the floor.
Phi Delta Theta, commonly \nown as the Phis, coasted the whole
year on the reflected glory of former bac\-slapping politicians who were
their brothers. They started the year off with a bang and have been slow-
ing down ever since. Their pride and joy has been their beautiful house
which has been the only excuse for their stay on the campus this year.
Brother Popejoy, whose home town provided no better amusement,
wor\ed himself to a nub last summer arid sewed up the best rushees single-
handed before Rush Wee\ opened. Their successful Rush ~Wee\ left
them the enemy of the other frat men who, even with the aid of smooth
tal\ing brothers of yester-year were unable to grab off the best tea hounds.
They did give the season s best fraternity formal at which all the boys
played penguin. Their new no-stoop, no-squat, no-squint radio has made
their house the scene of "open house" every Saturday night whether they
as\ed for it Or not. (Concluded on Page 134)

"Doc' Mann, president of a get-together for southern gentlemen called
Kappa Alpha, led his men in a slow start Rush Wee\. Their house on
Saturday nights doesn't even warrant a sudden visit from the Dean. What
few boys do trot out weekend dates for the house sit in the corner or play
bridge until sheer boredom forces them to find a more amusing spot. Under
the direction of Dromgoole, mighty leader of the Barbs, they did manage
to grab off a few offices on the campus which will ma\e them loo\ better
to their national officers. The biggest fault with this fraternity is that they
ma\e better Barbs than Gree\s.
I'll tell you about the A. D. Pi girls first because they really ought
to get first in something. They're a nice quiet bunch of girls who refer to
themselves as the marrying \ind. Most of them import their dates from
outlying towns. They swooped down Rush V*/ee\ and ran up quantity
by pledging a tribe from Southeast Texas. Their biggest downfall this
year has been due to a split in the chapter. It seems they couldn't decide
who could be called a beauty. If they have enough relatives coming to
school next year, I guess they will still be with us.
The Tri Delts are a pain in anybody's nec\. They still go in for safety
in numbers. For years they have been trying to beat the Zetas out of their
social position on the campus, but they still go for too many tomboys. I'll
bet they write rush letters in cowboy suits. Their only claim to notoriety
this year has been due to their successful political advances. This was a
result of their tie-up with the K. A. president (who, before he passed it
on, let one of their sisters wear his pin) and his alliance with the Barbs.
Their only claim to staying on the campus is that someone has to occupy
the wing of the Romans Building they have been in, and no one else will.
The Zetas are referred to as "hell raisers". The technique by which
they have held their title and \ept out of trouble is the coveted desire of
very Delta. Outside of winning the most popular girl, their political efforts
have been nil. The girls claim they get around too much to drag a vote
from other girls. They made a lot of people sore by grabbing off who they
wanted the first of Rush V*/ee\ then sitting bac\ and viewing very smugly
what they had got. Their pledges managed to get their names before the
bublic by scrawling them everywhere at Cooper's. Their downfall was not
being able to stay away from the Phis. If they were smart, they would
ma\e the Phis help pay for their parties instead of just giving them for
them. You'll have to watch them, honey, they are old hands at talkjng
There are so many things to tell you about my sorority, I'll have to
wait until I see you. We are \nown as Mu Alpha Sigma, which stands for
mutual admiration society. After all, that's all a sorority is anyway.
Don't promise anybody anything until you see me; I don't want you
to see the wrong "light".
